Vergennes police make heroin, cocaine bust
VERGENNES — Police in Vergennes cited three Albany, N.Y., residents passing through town last Friday with possession and trafficking of drugs.
On the evening of Feb. 3, a Vergennes police officer stopped a car for allegedly speeding on West Main Street in Vergennes. The officer detected the odor of marijuana from within the vehicle, according to a police press release, and later seized the vehicle to apply for a search warrant, which was granted.
Upon searching the vehicle, police say they found within the vehicle 27 grams of powdered cocaine and 100 bags of heroin, which collectively had a street value of between $3,500 and $4,000.
Police report that the three occupants of the vehicle — driver Kessiah Harvin and passengers Jamel Sears and Robert Scales — were on their way to Burlington.
The Vergennes police cited all three for heroin possession, heroin trafficking and possession of cocaine, and were lodged at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility. Bail was set at $100,000 for Scales, $50,000 for Sears and $35,000 for Harvin. An arraignment was scheduled for Monday at the Addison Superior County, criminal division.
